This is an interesting post about tipping: http://beingbostonian.wordpress.com/2012/03/02/youre-an-adult-learn-how-to-tip/

Let’s start with his Key Point:

10% = Bad Service, 15% = Below Average Service, 20% = Satisfactory Service


Good post. Having been a server in the past I can agree with most everything you stated.

But… When does Bad Service = No Tip?

Just curious. I had some horrible service recently. I mean horrible. And when it came time for the gratuity (doesn’t gratuity mean optional?) I was tempted to stiff the guy completely. ..As of today, I have never not tipped. But I still curious… When does an optional tip mean “No Tip”?

And just to make sure I didn’t misspeak, here is the definition for gratuity:

gratuity [grəˈtjuːɪtɪ]n

1. (Business / Commerce) a gift or reward, usually of money, for services rendered; tip
2. something given without claim or obligation
